Hard To Handle, Candyman, Me & My Uncle, Cold Rain & Snow
d1t1 - sub-second left channel drop out ~1:38
Benefit for the Montessori School and Bear. Hard To Handle through Cold Rain appear on the circulating SBD excerpt. The rest of the tunes are according to Rob Eaton's transcript of a 45-minute vault SBD reel. There was also a NRPS set, and according to DeadBase IX Hot Tuna and Lizard were also on the bill. Eaton lists:
12/23/70 WInterland Arena, San Francisco Ca - complete 4.8, 045min, Sbd, A1D0, Reel M->Reel 1->Dat 0, 48k, 7inch Master Reel@7.5ips 1/2trk->Technics 1st Gen Reel->3800 x 0
SBD > MR > R > DAT > CDR > EAC(secure) > Cool Edit (minor fixes) > CD Wave (retracking) > mkwACT > SHN (seekable)
Both of these sources are actually mislabelled variants on Winterland, October 4th & 5th 1970 - selected tracks from the multitrack tapes of these two October dates were mixed on 17th December and 23rd December 1970 (and mixdown reels labelled accordingly), which is where this dating confusion has crept in!
Nevertheless, great music & hopefully we'll hear 10/04/70 and 10/05/70 complete in their multitrack glory one day...

Super Lush Candyman
Don’t know which of the three sources are from 12/23, but this is very nice. Merry Christmas indeed!

you all are nuts, if you don't think this is as good a vocal as you're gonna hear from the candyman
especially love the great reverb, sometimes you just don't get that from a soundboard the way it sounds in the room, i always thought the room reverb was what gave it all the nice acid sound

My uncle & me
Good pickin' by Jerry on "Me & My Uncle" indeed. Winterland must've been on another plain of existence for several years. Wish I could find my wayback machine...

Good sound, decent performance
The sound on this is very good for the era, but there are more inspired performances of these tunes out there. Everything is very tasty, but nothing really grabs the attention. Good overall, but mediocre for 1970. If you only have time for one tune, listen to "Me & My Uncle". [we can't find the great performances if we rate everything as five stars]

Is this really 12/23 or is it 12/17??
Controversy swirls around this setlist. Here's the setlist for this date from Bear's cassettes:
1. Me and Bobby McGee
2. Dire Wolf
3. Good Lovin'
5. Good Lovin'
6. Casey Jones
7. Uncle John's Band
Dick Latavla has been quoted "This is how it exists on Bear's cassettes, I can't be responsible for how Deadbase has the songs listed."
This setlist also circulates in SBD format but does not appear in the Archive.

May I Please Have The Whole Show?
I had this on vinyl many years ago and it was played until it could be played no more. I would be "grateful" if the whole show was available. The Uncle John's Band is a classic version.
What is here is very good. The sound quality is extremely good. The vocals are excellent! Lesh is a driving force on all songs. Garcia is a little low in the mix on Hard to Handle, but not on the other tunes.
Given the incomplete nature of the recording, I need to give it 4 stars. What is here is 5 star material.
Does anyone know where to get the rest of the songs?
